"Sachs and Violens" is an American four issue
comic book mini-serieswritten by Peter David, with art by George Pérez, published by Marvel's Epic Comicsimprint from 1993to 1994.
Part of the short-lived Heavy Hitters line, the book featured a greater amount of violence and adult situations compared with mainstream comic books of the time (the title itself is an obvious play on the words "sex and violence"), and as such it was recommended for mature readers.
Juanita "J.J." Sachs is a model who does softcore photo shoots for her friend Ernie "Violens" Schultz, a former
Vietnam Warphotojournalist. After her friend is viciously murdered in a snuffphoto shoot, the two of them track down the people responsible, and in the process uncover an underworld of depravity, ending in a violent showdown in Mardi Gras.
The series has been collected into a trade paperback by
